Gatlinburg SkyTrail

Take A Hike Behind the SkyBridge 

Coming this Fall!

The Gatlinburg SkyTrail is a scenic walkway that will connect each end of the SkyBridge and provide guests the opportunity to take a leisurely hike in the mountains while enjoying new views of the famous SkyBridge. At just over one-third of a mile in length, the SkyTrail will be an enjoyable walk for adults, kids, and even dogs and offer three distinct sections.

The Elevated-Boardwalk is an wooden walkway leading from the SkyDeck back along the hillside of the ravine that cuts under the SkyBridge.  Along the way, interactive signage will provide information about the engineering of the SkyBridge, the history of iconic Gatlinburg SkyLift, and the wildfires of 2016 that swept across Crockett Mountain where the SkyTrail stands today.  This elevated walking area will be unlike anything else in the Gatlinburg area! 

The Tulip Tower is a steel tower set in the back of the ravine accessed by two rope bridges and featuring four elevated viewing platforms.  There is a special story behind the theme and story of this tower, with information on each level.  At the top of the tower, enjoy a very unique view of the Smokies and the iconic SkyBridge.  This will be an adventure for all ages! 

The Path is the non-boardwalk portion of the trail cut into the natural hillside extending from the Tulip Tower across to the west end of the SkyBridge with views of the Smoky Mountains from every step.
